Masala Chai is a common Indian spicy tea dating back for many centuries. Tea plants have grown wild in the Assam region since time immemorial, but historically Indians viewed tea as a herbal medicine rather than as a recreational beverage.
In the 1830's, the British East India Company became concerned about the Chinese monopoly on tea, began to cultivate Assamese tea plantations locally. However, consumption of black tea within India remained low until the promotional campaign by the British-owned Indian Tea Association in the early 20th century, which encouraged factories, mines, and textile mills to provide tea breaks for their workers.
